Dailey, P.J., R.C. Graves, and J.L. Herring. 1978. Survey of Hemiptera collected on common milkweed, Asclepias syriaca, at one site in Ohio. Entomological News 89(7&8): 157-162.

ABSTRACT: Hemiptera frequenting 337 plants of common milkweed, Asclepias syriaca were surveyed by daily collecting for a period of 90 consecutive days. Forty-six species are listed, some of which are probably new Ohio records. Five species were considered to be significantly abundant (more than 50 individuals collected): Lygaeus kalmii, Lygus lineolaris, Plagiogfiathus politus, Adelphocoris lineolatus, and Cosmopepla bimaculata. Only L. kalmii (1,173 individuals collected) and 0ncopeltus fasciatus, which was relatively scarce, are host specific.

Cosmopepla lintneriana (Kirkaldy)
Syn: Cosmopepla bimaculata (Thomas)
